Olympic Steel Recognized For Workplace Safety And Health Excellence

CLEVELAND, Aug. 18, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olympic Steel, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZEUS), a national steel service center, today announced receipt of a Michigan Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) Award. The award, presented by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA), distinguishes the Company's Detroit, Michigan facility for its exemplary safety and health management program.

Representatives from MIOSHA presented the award during a ceremony held on site at the Detroit facility on August 18.

"Olympic Steel is committed to providing a safe work environment and promoting employee health and well being as one of our company Core Values," said Michael Cedoz, General Manager. "We are pleased to receive this prestigious recognition, and we commend our employees for the critical role they play in sustaining a safe work environment."

To qualify for SHARP recognition, a company must be considered a high-hazard industry, and complete a thorough site consultation conducted by the MIOSHA review team. Companies earn distinction for implementing a safety and health system that achieves results far beyond those of their peers.
